Ceiling Fan Drum Shade Kit - Well "they," say that you aren't able to stand a draft during winter months, but that you are able to equalize the air temperature by utilizing your fan in the reverse direction. I wondered why the ceiling fans that were older didn't get a reverse button. The individuals who designed those fans, just too ignorant to think of used reverse in winter?
Before the temperature is comfortable at the low levels of the rooms, the heat unit runs. But from the time this happens, it will be very hot in the ceiling level.
But what if there is a solution to get this hot air down to the lower levels, off the ceiling where we reside. The heat unit wouldn't need to work as long and also the savings on our utility bill could be significant. The temperature would essentially equalize at floor and ceiling levels, meaning that the heat wouldn't be squandered keeping the ceilings warm.
But then someone said that the draft made by the ceiling fans could be too much for winter months. Until it hits the floor, afterward it's going to come down. Now it will go, toward the centre of the area, back in at floor level and then back up to the ceiling fan.
